Drake and newcomer Tory Lanez have been throwing shots in their music back and forth, with the latest coming from Tory on his A$AP Ferg-assisted track, “Line Up The Flex.” On the track, he raps:
“F*ck them n*ggas that was hating on me even though a n*gga used to tell em all I was never ever gang gang gang gang I was one umbrella mob”
This was in response to Drake‘s line on “Summer Sixteen,” where he’d rapped:
“You was never gang, gang, gang, gang, you was never one us Had us fooled for a minute there, but now we done all grow’d up”
Yesterday news broke that Meek Mill was coming for Drake on April 29 by releasing his much talked about Dreamchasers 4 mixtape same day Drizzy drops his much anticipated Views From The 6 album. Datpiff’s KP clears up the rumors.
In 2015, Erykah Badu responded to a fan who’d asked if she listens to Azealia Banks, and wrote, “Tried.” Simple enough, but of course because Azealia is Azealia, she couldn’t take it in stride. She responded to Badu with, “…. Jealousy,” and then a brief exchange occurred, with Azealia actually wanting to fight Badu. SMH! Now over a year later, the pair have buried the hatchet, after Badu decided to extend an olive branch to her younger peer. “sis. 1 thing I know 4sho about YOU is that you r an advocate 4 your folks. For that I humbly apologize,” she tweeted. Banks then accepted the apology, an added, “i apologize for all the stupid things I said in response. I honestly look up to you and think your incredible.” Check out the full exchange in the gallery!
Ice Cube and KISS rocker Gene Simmons have been going back and forth since last week, following Cube’s speech during N.W.A.’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In his speech, Cube shot back at Simmons’ comments in a recent Rolling Stone article, where he said he couldn’t wait for hip-hop to be finished, and that he feels the genre should not be in a hall of fame for rock and roll. You can read what was said here. For their latest, Cube has written out a lengthy reply via Twitter (one that he had to attach a screenshot of a note to get everything in,) and Gene too has replied on the social network. Neither party is backing down at this point, but I’m really going to need Gene to stop referencing a “Rap Hall of Fame.” NO SUCH THING, so it is irrelevant to any argument! Check out their replies in the gallery and let us know your thoughts.
Idk man…he is a comedian. Chris Rock had the gram in a frenzy last night when posted a pic with Andre 3000 and other celebs with the caption reading he was “hard at work” on the new Andre 300 album. Whatchu think?? Hit the jump!
Saw this one coming…well besides the building part of course. Drake reveals quickly his cover art for “Views From The 6” aside a building in London, before it gets taken down…but you gotta love screenshots. Hit the jump.
Usually when you see any song ft. Jay-Z, you get hype. To get a new verse from the entrepreneur was exciting for a lot of fans, but ultimately many were let down…the always merciless internet goes in on Hov now for his “bar” in Drake’s “Pop Style” also featuring Kanye West. Hit the jump for the mockery.
T’yanna Wallace is not pleased with her late father’s former friend and business partner. Taking to Twitter earlier this morning, the Biggie Smalls heiress aired out her grievances with Diddy, after he apparently did not provide her with a ticket or any information about the Bad Boy reunion concert that he’s throwing on the eve of what would have been her father’s 44th birthday. “This bad boy concert is for my dad’s bday but I got NOT ONE TICKET. just wanna point that out,” T’yanna tweeted. “Haven’t spoken to puff in years, I guess that’s why I didn’t get a ticket to the concert. Puff does nothing for my family. Tired of lying for his lame ass!”
Oh Cudi the Kid. Cudi’s at it again (supposedly) with more (supposed) shots at Drake. Back when Drake and Future released “WATTBA”, Cudi was documented in the twittersphere for subliminally dissing Drake saying “Some of you are so easily amused and impressed by mediocrity”. Obvi there’s no Drake mention there but the timing of the project’s release and Cudi’s tweet indicated it was aimed Drizzy’s way. Well Drake just dropped 2 new singles “One Dance” & “Pop Style” featuring Kanye West & Jay-Z, and once again Cudi has impeccable timing. Hit the jump.
